Cristiano Ronaldo is not your average human being – but it turns out there are no superhuman secrets behind his ripped physique.
In fact, his means of sculpting those six-pack abs really comes down to nothing more than dedication and hard work.
As reported by the Daily Mirror, the former Manchester United star explained his routine at the launch of CR7 Crunch Fitness.

He was asked at the event if there is truth to the rumour he does 3,000 sit ups a day – and for anyone hoping to emulate the Madrid man you’ll be relieved the answer was no – but there is still a hell of a lot!
I do them 4-5 times a week, but the minimum is 200-300.
It’s about the maintenance. But you should try and avoid doing too many – when you do that you get a hernia or problems with your discs.
They are the basic exercise, really good for the front and the back, but 3000? No, I don’t even do 3,000 a week.
Obviously it isn’t enough to crank out 200-300 sit ups every day alone, ‘abs are made in the kitchen’ as the saying goes.
So eat clean and put in work – but make sure you keep count!
